    “People who cook eat a healthier diet without giving it a thought. It’s the collapse of home cooking that led directly to the obesity epidemic.” –Michael Pollan (author of nine best-selling books on the state of our food industry including “The Omnivore’s Dilemma”).

    Cooking full meals at home (more than heating up a pizza or baking a pre-made lasagna) is making a come back! We have all seen the effect of allowing factories and large corporations cook for us – obesity, an increase in heart disease, and cancer – so it is time to get back in the kitchen and prepare health-giving foods for ourselves and our families!

    But wait! Who has time for that? We are all too busy with jobs, and commuting, child care, getting together with our friends, and what about that favorite show we wanted to watch on TV tonight? Cooking – messing up the kitchen and trying to prepare a healthy meal – seems so time consuming and trite – yet our health and our girth depends on it.

    So let’s talk here about ways to save time in the kitchen – both in food preparation and clean up.

    Some of the topics coming soon are cooking with crock pots (or slow cookers), preparing meals in quantities and freezing in portions, meal planning, cooking for the week ahead, and perhaps food preservation (canning, dehydrating).
